When you’re looking for a simple dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth, this M&M Cookie Pie is perfect (especially if you have leftover Halloween candy!).
Do you happen to be staring at an overflowing bag of Halloween candy too?
Raise your hand if you can relate.
Even though the kids donated a record TWELVE POUNDS of candy to the Halloween Candy Buy Back program, we still have a rather large Target-sized bag of “favorites” in our home.
Which is dangerous.
Mostly for me.
So when the kids aren’t looking, I sneak a few packages of candy into a new recipe.
Not that they mind, of course, when they get rewarded with something like this M&M Cookie Pie.
It’s quick enough that you can easily make it after dinner (only dirtying one bowl!), and with the colorful M&Ms popping through, it’s a sure-fire winner. If you happen to be looking for something a bit more demure, you can replace the M&Ms with chocolate chunks – use up those Hershey bars! I personally love the chew that the additional of oats gives this pie, and the addition of oatmeal practically makes it healthy, right??
And if you really want to gild the lily, serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup over the top.
